Quechua Architecture Competition, Q.A.C., welcomes all participants to take part in this challenge which consists in presenting and developing a project that explores diverse fields of thinking and design. The challenge for this occasion is “Aconcagua Mountain Glamping”. Feeling on top of the world has been accomplished by few human beings. Mountaineering is an extreme activity where you defy nature testing your body at the limit and even risking your life. In this process architecture has gained an important role connecting humans and nature to ease this interaction. From the base of the mountain to the summit, architecture has the role of protecting visitors through the journey.

Climbing a mountain is a ritual for many; the process of arriving at the site, overpassing nature to the base camp, remaining at the refuge, and preparing the expedition to the summit are some of the challenges that every mountaineer faces. Every designer will be challenged to
bring their imagination to the limit to accomplish this competition. On this occasion, we select the highest point in South America where its natural conditions and position is a matter of study for designers in the selected site: Mendoza, Argentina.
Q.A.C. thanks and admires all designers who are willing to take the challenge.
